The day had finally come - three weeks after negotiations and daily effort to find the school, I was really grateful to finally visit LOS DESTILADEROS! As school only starts on the 29th of February, I was expecting the school to be empty and hoped for the principal to come and open the door for the Ministry of Education and I... surprisingly we were welcomed by lots of students, their parents and the principal of the school. He´s been working at the school since 2001 so almost since its inauguration in 1999. At the beginning still a bit shy and not really knowing what to expect from me, everyone soon lightened up and understood that my intention is to help their school and community. The school itself consists of one classroom, a couple of newer and older toilets (the older ones are basically wholes where no flush is needed), a small kitchen with basic utilities and a communal area which is more or less open-air, meaning no air-conditioning. Speaking of AC´s - the one from the classroom did not function during the visit, one light bulb was broke and electricity wires were all over the place. Behind the classroom there is a tiny storage area and next to it a bunch of old chairs which need to be taken away. Due to bureaucratic procedures this has happened yet. Summarizing, there is lots to be done and now it´s just a matter of days to find out how many $ it takes. Once there is a formal letter signed between the Ministry and Waved - the official letter drop to surf brands (Quiksilver, Billabong etc.) and the travel and in person pitch to surf schools and shops can start. Besides that, there will be an official Waved Crowdfunding account where the public can be part of the project and its success too.
